Coal, gas and other resources
With more than 30 billion tonnes of identified resources of black coal, Queensland is the world's largest seaborne coal exporter.
Petroleum and gas
The Queensland Government provides expert advice and industry liaison services for investment and project development in the petroleum and gas industries. A number of basins in the state are currently producing, or have the potential to produce, oil and gas.
Minerals, gemstones and quarry materials
Queensland is rich in copper, lead, silver, zinc, bauxite, phosphate rock, magnesite and silica sand, and its gemfields attract thousands of fossickers annually.
The Queensland Government has convened an implementation committee to recommence uranium mining in Queensland.
Underground coal gasification (UCG) policy
The policy provides for a UCG pilot phase over the coming years to gather the necessary information to assess the future viability of a prospective UCG industry in the State.
